I am looking for the procedures to power down and power on . I came across a document which explains to do it via unisphere gui.
Is there any way we can watch the shutdown process whether it is completely power off? How do we know it is completely shutdown?

Easy!

Follow the instructions here: https://russia.emc.com/collateral/TechnicalDocument/docu41465.pdf. You can confirm that the array has powered off successfully by observing the LEDs on the rear of the DPE:
From page 18 of the document linked: "On the rear of a successfully powered down DPE, the SP blue power LED, SP amber fault LED, and Unsafe to remove (white hand symbol) LED are OFF on each storage processor. Additionally, on the front of a successfully powered down DPE, the DPE enclosure
power/status blue LED is ON and all other DPE and disk module LEDs are OFF."

Duncan,
Thank you for your reply. I do not see any on/off button. If I understood correctly when I shutdown the DPE via unisphere gui  the entire system will be shutdown this includes the DPE and DAE, am I correct?
